Full-screen libvisual visualizations display leaves unpopulated border in FC4

I am having some trouble with libvisual playback in my installation of Amarok.

I am using the nVidia driver for geforce. What happens when I use a visualization in full-screen is that the images do not fill the screen all the way. This is not happening with other full-screen overlays in other applications.

Someone in the #libvisual room tole me that it was clearly a matter of using a "modeline" entry in my xorg.conf file.

I have gotten some output from gtf and incorporated it into my xorg.conf file, trying it like this:
Section "Monitor"
	Identifier   "Monitor0"
	VendorName   "Monitor Vendor"
	ModelName    "Hitachi CM813"
	HorizSync    31.0 - 115.0
	VertRefresh  50.0 - 160.0
	Option	    "dpms"
  # 1152x864 @ 85.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 77.10 kHz; pclk: 119.65 MHz
	ModeLine     "1152x864_85.00" 119.7 1152 1224 1352 1552 864 865 868 907 -hsync +vsync
but have not yet succeeded in getting this blank border eliminated.

Does anyone have any ideas?
